This afternoon Representatives James Sensenbrenner (R-WI), John Conyers (D-MI), Bobby Scott (D-VA), John Lewis (D-GA), and Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) introduced common sense legislation that would repair and restore the Voting Rights Act. This bipartisan effort to fix the damage done by the U.S. Supreme Courtís decision in Shelby v. Holder is necessary to restore and protect the rights of voters across the country.

Tell Congress you support the Voting Rights Act!

Restoring the Voting Rights Act is common sense policy that will help prevent racial and language discrimination in our elections and protect the fundamental right to vote for all Americans. The legislation introduced today will modernize the Voting Rights Act and better protect all voters against discrimination at the ballot box.

Please urge your elected officials to support this important legislation and encourage them to act swiftly to move toward final passage.

Congress can pass this legislation this year and ensure that the electoral process is free, fair and accessibleóbut they need to know that you have their backs. Tell Congress that the Voting Rights Act needs to be repaired and restored this year.

Sincerely,

Elisabeth MacNamara
President, League of Women Voters

This partisan court should have
reversed itself when it saw that
several of the regulated States
immediately moved to pass very
unconstifutional voter id laws....

Amazing that Sensenbrenner who has been one of the worst Representatives is on board. He's the guy who refused to allow hearings by Democrats or a place to hold inquiries.

Oh, they know exactly how I feel about this, and a few other, issues! Fortunately, they agree with me, but for my idiot republican congressman.
